Adam Rude

Sheehan Trucking Inc.
(a FedEx Ground contracted service provider)
Tennessee – Step Van Class Champion

Being taken under the wings of a former National Champion proved unbeatable for Adam as it helped him ride to victory in the Step Van Class at his first-ever state competition appearance. Adam, of Sheehan Trucking Inc., which is contracted to provide service for FedEx Ground in Nashville, credits his boss and fellow driving champion James Sheehan with coaching him for his first TDC. With 100,000 safe miles driven, he says he had a family influence in driving professionally and stayed with it because of the constant changes and challenges he faces. Away from the job, Adam enjoys motorcycle riding and carpentry. Fiancée Kayla will be rooting him on. He lives in Portland, Tennessee.
